    Our Black & Decker Gizmo hand mixer recargable battery is in need of a proper burial. But I can not seem to find another one to rellace it with. It is a Novacell 2.4v 1500mAh Nickel-Cadmium Battery.

    I have the same problem with the battery not holding a charge. Because of this the recharging plug overheats and appears to be overheating from the inside.

Go . select R9-batteries-2.4V 1500mAh NiCd battery. Take the end safety caps off the old battery and install on new one you can use electeral shrink spagetty to anchor the endes on the new battery. This will work on the Novacell brand old battery.

I have the same problem. The Dewart sStore, formerly Black & Decker, suggested calling B&D at 1-800-738-0245 to see if they carry it. I'll do that later on today. If they don't a local store in Spokane WA, Batteries Plus, says they can make one for $12 if I can't find a ready-made one.

Remove the battery . Recycle it, and throw the mixer in the trash and buy another brand of cordless mixer to replace it.

Peter, You nailed the problem on the head! When I implemented your fix, I...

Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

My braun multimix hand held mixer used to have several speeds and now only has one which is the forward hold all the time position. I opened it up and made sure the ball bearings were in place but no...

I just fixed mine. My daughter dropped it (again) and speeds 2 and 3 failed to work so I disassembled it and found a broken center terminal on the power transistor. I saw a fine crack so I soldered it. I also added much needed strain relief to the heat sink. It works fine now. This is a poor design. The power device has a heat sink attached and there is no strain relief so the transistor can move back and forth at least 3/8". For a tool that sees a lot of vibration and shock, this heat sink should be tie strapped or have hot melt glue to prevent movement. Gary

The Battery will not charge

I do have a manual, but not at work with me. However, I do remember seeing an explanation for a switch that is located on the lower left hand corner of the pda that you would have to use a paper clip to reach. I would wait for someone else to verify, but I suspect this is a hardboot type of reset instead of the button located on back that is accessed via the paper clip. This second switch located on the bottom of the device was a batter disconnect or lock out or something like that.
Just my humble thoughts.
I've done lots with the Ipaq series but not so much with the Toshibas. I helped my 10 year old daughter buy this one used off of ebay with her allowance so we had to go with a low cost pda.

Is this a battery problem?

If it's not the E2 going to sleep mode ;-), have it checked by a Palm service center .It might just need a new battery. Worst case scenario the charging system is faulty. Have it checked.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you make out.

BT Problem Battery/Power Problem

In my opinion it is always very risky to buy some second hand unit because you can not be sure if every hardware component works properly. The best solution for you is to contact service partner and let them check the PDA. It is also possible that power supply electronic has some malfunction
